This Friday, a pop-up community centre is taking over Hauser and Wirth Gallery in Piccadilly until 30 July.
The interactive exhibition has been created in response to voluntary sector and arts funding cuts, and bank-related art installations will be scattered among the participatory sessions. The gallery has partnered with various organisations such as Open Age, to deliver intergenerational activities.
The opening day will feature a 3-hour tea dance from 1.30pm with free fish and chips in the gallery’s beautiful ballroom.
The quirky list of activities taking place over the next 2 months includes fencing, singing, knitting, Brazilian Zouk dancing, computing, astrology and embroidery classes, along with laughter yoga, paint jams and Biodanza spiritual movement sessions. In fact the list keeps growing, with organisations flocking to join the programme of events.
Find the pop-up community centre at Hauser and Wirth Gallery, Piccadilly, W1J 9DY from Friday 13th May until 30th July, Tues- Sat, 10am-6pm. For more information and to check the developing programme call: 0207 255 8955.
